Wayne Grimshaw rated Hills Residential 5 stars

The team at Hills Residential have been really impressive from the beginning – I've dealt with Abigail, Laura, Leah and Charlotte and they've provided a seamless and consistently great service. I've sold my current house and purchased my next one through them and their communication has been excellent throughout; it's really made the whole process much simpler and less stressful, especially with the delays moving during COVID-19.

Francesca Ledwith rated Hills Residential 5 stars

My husband and I would highly recommend Hills Residential as an estate agent if you are selling a house. From start to finish, every member of staff we spoke to at Hills were brilliant. They were really helpful and made the whole process very easy especially with a teething baby and a global pandemic! Our solicitors were not the greatest in communicating with us. However the level of communication and updates we had from Hills were 5*.

Becky was able to market and find a tenant throughout these difficult Corona times, she was helpful and professional during the process. This was our first experience as a Landlord of using Hills Residential and it did not disappoint therefore would have no issues with instructing again should we require.

Emily Pitt rated Hills Residential 5 stars

I was honestly blown away by the support that I received from Charlotte Coleby throughout buying my house. She answered my endless questions, was really helpful with my next steps and I felt really in the loop. Because of her amazing service I’ve honestly been recommending the firm and I’ll be using their service if I need them in the future. I appreciated her help so much so thank you!

Currently with Hills Residential buying a property in a very difficult time but Charlotte is helping us navigate through. We'd already seen a few properties via this agent and hoped that we'd finally be able to work with them and buy one of their houses, as the team are second-to-none. There's no-one better in the Salford area. Fingers crossed for a smooth journey but whatever happens, the service from Hills is outstanding and team are professional and friendly.
